Posted Breed: Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Big and beautiful describes Wyatt perfectly! His sweet mom was a pregnant stray that we rescued in Dallas just prior to having her last litter of puppies. Wyatt was one of her little beauties born in foster care on April 8th, 2013. He’s not so little anymore, weighing in at 75 pounds. Wyatt is an American Staffordshire Terrier mix with floppy ears, soulful eyes and a beautiful brown brindle and white coat. Wyatt fortunately never had to live on the streets as a stray, but sadly he has waited a very long time for that perfect person to adopt him. He is a shy and fearful boy in new or unknown situations, but extremely happy and fun-loving in his comfort zone. If he gets scared or feels threatened, he generally runs away from the cause of it. He needs very slow and calm introductions to new people and other dogs, but once he befriends you, you’re in for lots of good Wyatt love. One of his best buddies says that every time he sees Wyatt, he gets loads of doggy kisses, cuddles and Wyatt wants to lay with him with their faces touching. This pup can show some deep love to his close friends. Wyatt’s foster mom has had him for a little over a year and loves him dearly, but she knows that he could be happier in a home with less action. He would benefit from a calm, stress-free environment where he doesn’t need to be a social butterfly or expected to visit dog parks. He’d be happy as a homebody, watching movies on the couch and be the King of his own backyard. Wyatt often sits on the couch with back end on the seat and his front feet on the floor. It’s quite the silly sight! An experienced dog owner with lots of patience and compassion is what Wyatt needs, but also someone that doesn’t have a constant flow of new people in their home. He enjoys the company of some dogs, but dogs with very high energy or reactive personalities are not for him. He prefers to have a couple of very close, trusted human friends in his life. Wyatt has not spent any time around children, but we feel they may be a bit much for him. He enjoys lots of activities like playing in his kiddie pool, carrying around all types of dog toys and running figure eights in the yard. Watching Wyatt run and play ball with friends is such a treat, especially the giant smile that covers his face. Wyatt is a fantastic leash walker and will stay right alongside of his person if it’s a quiet area without a lot of people but tries very hard to avoid anyone in his path. Wyatt is house, leash and crate trained perfectly. He also is well trained with all of his basic commands and listens well. He is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. This happy, healthy boy is ready for his forever family! He is dreaming of his future owners, so if you think you are his dream come true and would like to meet him today, please email us at placement@duckteam6.org. Adoption appliations can be submitted for him at http://duckteam6.org/adoption-application/. Wyatt’s adoption fee is $200.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Willie! This handsome Labrador mix is 2 ½ years old and is 65 pounds. He is charming, gentle and asks for very little outside of love. He currently lives in a home with two other Labradors, but has never been around cats. He is very laid back for his age and a great observer. He comes from very humble beginnings…he was dropped off at a no-kill shelter as a newborn puppy, and was dropper then bottle fed until old enough to eat solid food. He loves to snuggle, and even smiles really big when he is giving you a hug! He’s very obedient, rarely barks, and is loyal to his humans. He doesn’t mind a lot of action and is great with kids. In his current home, he loves to play and nap with his doggie brother and sister, however he has to dine alone because he gets possessive of his meals, but only around other dogs. Willie is eager to cuddle up with his new owner. He would thrive in any size family that wants a young, laid back friend they can give all their love to. He’s great with humans of all ages and plays well with other dogs, but a home where he is the only dog would be the most comfortable environment for Willie. While he’s not a fetcher, hiker, or running partner, he enjoys galloping and playing in his fenced backyard. He takes walks on the leash occasionally, but it’s not his favorite activity. Willie is fully house and kennel trained. He goes right into his kennel without a fuss. If you want a laid back and delightful snuggle buddy who thrives in a single dog family, we would love to introduce him to you. He is available for adoption and will bring plenty of snuggles and smiles to his new family. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. His adoption fee is $200. If you have additional questions, please email us at placement@duckteam6.org or to fill out the adoption application, visit http://duckteam6.org/adoption-application. **Willie is a member of our Guest Dog Program, therefore he is being cared for by his owner/rescuer. Duck Team 6 is assisting with networking and the owner/rescuer will facilitate the adoption.**

      Breed: Plott Hound-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Plott Hound / Mixed (short coat). Meet Junior! Looking for a new member for your pack? Junior, is a 9 month old beautiful brindled pup. Junior loves to play! He enjoys running around the yard, rolling around in the dirt and playing with toys. He loves toys! His favorites are plush toys and a cow femur keeps him busy while his foster parents are away. Junior gets along great with other dogs, especially bigger dogs, and is known to cuddle and play with his furry friends. Junior had a rough life before he was taken in by Duck Team 6 and for this reason, he is still rather skittish with new people, places and activities. He is still jumpy when approached and his reaction is to run to hide. He was born on the streets and was most likely hit by a car, fracturing his left front leg. He had surgery and his leg is completely healed and he uses it normally. Junior loves to wrestle with his foster brother. He has a lot of playful energy so his ideal family will provide him with walks and daily play sessions. When playtime is over and Junior is tired, he really likes to lounge on his bed. Junior would be best in a home with another dog. He needs another well-balanced, dog to continue teaching him the ropes on what it means to live in a house and have regular meals. He is working on leash training and still needs help learning which items are his toys to chew on and which items are not toys. He also will take a lot longer to adjust into a new family than a dog that hasn’t had such a challenging start to life. A VERY patient, understanding and compassionate family is required to make this pup feel safe and to help him continue to gain some much needed trust and confidence. He is crate trained, house trained and ready for his forever home! Junior is definitely in need of more training and needs a stable, dog savvy family willing to work with him on a daily basis. If you are that family and have a huge heart for a needy boy, please email us at placement@duckteam6.org. We will connect you directly with his foster mom and set up a visit so you can meet him and determine if he has a special place in your heart and home.
